I've seen this picture I don't know how many times, and I swear I have at least one copy of it in every photo archive I possess--
As many times as I've seen it, though, I had no idea where it came from. An old time movie, more than likely, but which one? I'm sure if I'd taken the time to search a variety of blogs I might have come up with the answer, but I never did.. It was easier to just wonder, I guess.
That is, until--while searching another archive--I came across this poster--
And, of course, I realized that the first illustration on the left looked strangely familiar....
Mystery solved at last!
